"Of all the many pictures in Taverns, the interiors are most alluring-hardwood floors, colonial furnishings, inviting hearths, and especially those taprooms. There's a beautiful shot of the taproom at the Griswold Inn in Essex, Conn. But of the countless times I've been to "the Gris," I never knew until reading this book that one of the encased muskets held in its barrel a tightly scrolled letter, dating from 1776, from a father to his son."

- The Washington Free Beacon
"These taverns are still around. So why not embark on a journey that combines a bit of history and a bit of booze? That was Adrian Covert's wonderful idea when he wrote Taverns of the American Revolution."

- The Weekly Standard
"Taverns of the American Revolution is a great gift for history buffs as well as those interested in the drinks and conversations that occurred in these watering holes, some of which were frequented by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin."

- New Jersey Monthly
